January 12 - On the River in Norco

"On the River in Norco" As you can see from the painting just from yesterday, I have made some major changes to the color, the composition and the values! That's because I wanted a more intimate feel, and much more texture to this 24 x 30 inch canvas. The location is Norco--the city that has horse trails everywhere, and many of those in the riverbed. I've ridden here many times, and hope this creates the feel of that "jungle" of river habitat. Available from the Recent Work page on my web site. I couldn't find a photo of its original state... sorry.

January 10 - Keeneland Workouts

It's past midnight, and this painting came from the brushes at 10 p.m. I'm feeling a bit stressed lately with dealing with my mother being in a skilled nursing facility, and having to watch over her medical care. I have to paint, and enjoy the process--it is at once familiar and exciting. This is an 8 x 10, or a 9 x 12--I need to go measure it--done with the ease I have in handling a brush full of acrylics. The color system is so easy to use, I hardly think about it any more as I mix my colors. How different form 20 years ago when I was terrified of color due to not knowing anything about it!
Late, late night... goodnight.

January 9 - Silver Dreams, Golden Autumn

I'm so glad I am able to upload. Must be because of my dial up at home. Right now I'm at the wifi in the local coffee shop, and it sure is good to see that little image so I can upload my daily paintings again!
This painting was done as a commission for a cover for a book, and I kept the original, although the author and the publisher are using it for the book. So now I put it up for sale. It's here:
..for $500.

January 8 - A Bit Mulish

This painting is one that came back to me and has been in the racks for about two years, ever since my mother moved into assisted living. Downsizing from a large apartment to a studio apartment really allowed her to let go of the material goods of her life, and she returned this painting to me. Now in the "artist's collection", I know it is time to let it go.
